doping. there's got to be something there we're not hearing about. in about 12 hours the international cycling union will decide whether they will ban him for life. >> why are they pursuing it so hard if there's not enough evidence. >> and he retired once the judge denied his request to suppress the information to allow them to chase that. once that happened, they were done. >> so good to see you. >> good to see you. >> looking forward to seeing you soon. thanks. i'm don lemon, top of the hour, and here is what's happening in the world right now. the main suspect in a mass shooting today is dead and we just got confirmation from police in brookfield, wisconsin, that this man, his name is radcliffe haughton, was found dead at the scene and it looked like he killed himself. this is a full-service spa outside milwaukee. witnesses say the gunman walked inside at opening time and shot seven people. three of them died. make sure you stay there for details coming up in a few minutes. the numbers continue to climb in the deadly fungal meningitis outbreak. according to data released by thec dc, 23 deaths are now tied

violent protests erupted in beirut after the funeral of lebanon's assassinated intelligence chief. general what seem al asan was killed in broad daylight in a car bombing on friday. he was a critic of syria's regime. some protesters are blaming syria are for the assassination around pointing fingers at the government. lebanon's prime minister, syrias a government, and hezbollah have condemned the assassination. much more from beirut is ahead here on cnn. it has never happened before, but pope benedict xvi canonized the first native american saint at st. peter's today. lily of the mohawks lived in the 17th century. she's credited with the miraculous recovery of a boy from a flesh eating bacteria when his family prayed to her.
more on that shooting in the milwaukee suburbs. witnesses say a man walked into a day spa just as the business was opening. he had a gun, and he started shooting. national correspondent susan candiotti here with all the new details about the suspect and the investigation. susan, what do you have? >> reporter: hi, don. imagine how that day must have started out for so many people who worked at that hair salon or going in for a haircut or massage only to have shots ring out. police tell us that this gunman evidently went in there people thought he was trying to rob the place and then he started allegedly to fire. now we know that he has now taken his own life. here is the police chief. >> i can confirm that the suspect mr. radcliffe haughton has been found in the salon. it appears that he is deceased of a self-induced gunshot wound. >> reporter: now, we don't know
a motive because one has not yet been released, but we can tell you this, that authorities were not able to thoroughly search all of the salon for quite some time because they found what they thought was an improvised explosive device, a homemade bomb of some kind, and they're still trying to render it safe. when they were finally able to go inside, they were able to find the apparent shooter's body dying of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. they have also been trying to execute a search warrant at his house. my sources tell me that they have not yet received that search warrant as yet to see what they might find inside there, and, don, we can tell you this. we know that a restraining order was taken out on this man about two weeks ago and it might have been filed by his estranged wife, but the petitioner's name is not listed on that restraining order. we can tell you that no one who died has been identified as yet or the wounded as well.
again, three people dead. four people wounded. don? >> susan candiotti, thank you very much. anti-government rage boiling over in beirut. the situation there is very complicated. nick paton walsh has more on the intelligence chief's death and why so many people are on the edge in lebanon. >> reporter: sunday's funeral started with great ceremony honoring the life of the top intelligence official killed in a car bomb on friday. his funeral procession moving through central beirut to martyr square where it was met not only by the political elite of the country but also by crowds, thousands of lebanese, some here in grief, some here in anger. anger still high here in this country for the belief that many have of syria's involvement in this assassination. syria having condemned the blast but still deep-seated hostility in many lebanese toward that government leads them to believe they're behind this assassination. as the protests in the square
continue, they were addressed by leading political figures, one of them the form prime minister who said he thought the government should resign and the time for dialogue was not now. shortly after that statement, a number of young men started moving down the street that leads from martyr square where al hassan was buried towards the prime minister's office. there they were met by lines of riot police, an exchange of sticks, missiles thrown by both sides it seems until the police launched tear gas and then flares at the crowds moving towards them. the clashes continued for some time until a loud burst of what must have been gunfire blanks being fired by the police. after about half an hour of more tension, we appear to see three or four individuals it seemed injured on the ground but slowly the majority of the demonstration moved back down the street leaving a hard core fringe behind who began a lengthy standoff with the police
reinforcing themselves in numbe numbers. that scene remains quiet. the question is where does this leave lebanon at this point? will the prime minister resign? he offered his resignation on saturday. it was turned down by the president saying his departure would leave the country in an unacceptable political power vacuum. the question really is if this kind of unrest continues, what's better for lebanon? to see it's streets with people rioting and protesting on it or for its political elite to endure the uncertainty of trying to form a new government? questions, of course, that lebanon has to answer as it deals with the ultimate question of the last few days, who was behind the assassination of al hassan. nick paton walsh, cnn, beirut. the presidential candidates are preparing for their last debate. it's tomorrow night. it's on foreign policy. we're going to tell you what ch candidate is looking to accomplish in tomorrow's showdown. jen's car wasn't handling well.
we gave her car a free road handling check. i like free. free is good. my money. my choice. my meineke. foreign policy will be the main focus of tomorrow night's third and final presidential debate. with tensions high in several parts of the middle east, both president obama and governor romney will be called on to explain their vision for the region. cnn's athena jones gives us a preview. >> reporter: the third and final face-off between president obama and governor romney will focus entirely on foreign policy. from afghanistan and pakistan to israel, iran, and the changing middle east. the candidates will spar over america's role in the world, the new face of terrorism, and how to deal with the rise in china. with polls showing the president's advantage over romney in foreign policy has
narrowed since the summer, mr. obama tried to highlight one of his biggest foreign policy accomplishments at a light hearted charity dinner in new york. >> monday's debate is a little different because the topic is foreign policy. spoiler alert, we got bin laden. >> reporter: he also used his speech to poke fun at his opponent. >> of course, world affairs are a challenge for every candidate. after some of you guys remember, after my foreign trip in 2008, i was attacked as a celebrity because i was so popular with our allies overseas, and i have to say i'm impressed with how well governor romney has avoided that problem. >> reporter: for his part, romney could try again to bash the president for his administration's messy response to the attack in libya last month and link it to what he says is a failed approach to the region. >> this calls into question the president's whole policy in the middle east. look what's happening in syria,
in egypt, now in libya. consider the distance between ourselves and israel. the president said he was going to put daylight between us and israel. >> reporter: both candidates face a challenge monday night. >> the challenge for president obama is going to be defining the middle east strategy going forward. i mean, he's had some successes, he's had some things that are still pretty murky. >> reporter: romney's task could be bigger. >> i think for romney there's a broad challenge, and that is how do you drill down into specific polici policies? the republican party hasn't really figured out what a republican foreign policy looks like after the bush administration. i think romney's been uneager to really delve into that. >> reporter: still, while important to many voters, foreign policy ranks far below the economy. >> if you're mitt romney, every second you're talking about foreign policy is wasted.
which might mean that romney tries to break out of that and tries to bring home some of the foreign policy issues to domestic economic issues. >> reporter: with time running out, this is their last chance to make their case to millions of voters in a single night. governor romney spent this weekend preparing for the debate in florida, while president obama has been doing his debate prep at camp david. don? >> thank you, athena. both candidates are busy preparing for monday's debate. just how important is it and what exactly can we expect? mark preston, i guess you have a crystal ball. he's our political director in boca raton. mark, what can we expect as you look at your crystal ball there in boca? >> let me pull it out right here and kind of give you what's going on here, don. let me tell you, 24 hours from now the candidates are going to be seated at a table behind me for this 90-minute debate. perhaps that will calm down a little bit of the fireworks that we saw a week ago where barack
obama had to reassert himself to try to energize his base and show, in fact, that he was not going to back down to mitt romney. mitt romney is going to get the first question tomorrow night. they'll both have a chance then to answer the question and then there will be a discussion on it, but as athena just said there, this is going to be about foreign policy largely, but we can't forget about the economy. that will be a major theme tomorrow night. one of the themes when it comes to foreign policy surely is going to be this report from "the new york times" about how the u.s. has been in discussions about having one-on-one meetings with iran right after the elections. now, the administration, don, has said that that, in fact, is not true, that there's no agreement. mitt romney was asked about it today. he chose not to even address the question, but one of his surrogates, lindsay graham, was on the talk show this is morning, and he did. >> well, i think the iranians are trying to take advantage of our election cycle to continue to talk. as we talk with the iranians, whether it's bilaterally or unilaterally, they continue to
enrich. >> and there you have lindsay graham this morning talking about how iran perhaps is maybe trying to influence the elections. as athena said, won't just be about iran, it's going to be about afghanistan and pakistan. it's going to be the new middle east and the new threat of terror from that region and china, the looming giant, of course, across the sea, across the ocean, that the united states has to pay close attention to. don? >> mark preston, soothsayer, looking into the future for us. thank you very much, sir. we appreciate it. remember, you can watch monday's final presidential debate live right here on cnn. our coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. eastern. lance armstrong had a pretty bad week losing big money sponsor and leadership of his charities, but plenty of people are promising to live strong despite the man's fall from fame. we're in austin, texas, next. ♪ to look at [ sighs ] ♪ oh, he's shaggy ♪ and he eats like a hog [ male announcer ] the volkswagen jetta. available with advanced keyless technology. control everything from your pocket, purse, or wherever.
now to lance armstrong's difficult few weeks. those are his words, not mine. the guy who was once king of the cycling world spoke today to people who still support him and the cancer-fighting group he founded, livestrong. cnn's victor blackwell is in austin, texas, today. >> reporter: last week was tough for lance armstrong. next week could be even tougher, but over the weekend he surrounded himself with thousands of people who support him and the mission of the
organization he founded, livestrong. >> our founder and most importantly a cancer survivor, lance armstrong. >> reporter: speaking to riders in the team livestrong challenge at the starting line, the winner of seven consecutive tour de france titles made no mention of his resignation of the livestrong foundation for the possibility he could be stripped of his titles. >> obviously, it's been an interesting and as i said the other night at times a difficult few weeks. people ask me a lot, how are you doing? and i tell them, i say, well, i've been better, but i have also been worse. >> reporter: livestrong chairman and sew doug oleman assured the 4,300 riders in austin the organization will live on without armstrong as chairman. >> this is bigger than any one of us. it's about a movement of people coming together to truly change the world. >> you're livestrong, i'm
livestrong. >> reporter: that's four women are cancer survivors and armstrong supporters. paula, monica, and jean ann are riding in the challenge. lawyer rae's treatment ended just four weeks ago. >> he was able to fund survivorship in a way nobody else has been able to do before. >> >> he overcame cancer to return to his profession, being a professional athlete and then used that success to further the cause of cancer around the world. that's a story to me. >> reporter: experts estimate that lance armstrong might lose up to $200 million now that his big sponsors have dropped out, nike, radio shack, trek, but those companies say they'll continue to support livestrong. however, some individual donors to the organization say they've been duped. >> the results that mr. armstrong had in the tours de
france directly ben fighted livestrong, and he cheated and cheated beyond many people's beliefs or imagination. >> reporter: what do you say to the people who say they want their money back? quhoo what he did over here as an individual in the sport is one thing. in his organization to help cancer survivors is a totally different thing. what are you donating to? are you giving it to him? no, you're giving it to cancer survivors, to the organization itself. there is no -- it's not the same thing at all. >> reporter: livestrong officials say they raised $4.2 million over the weekend, a sign that support for the cause is not waning, even as armstrong's future becomes more uncertain by the day. and if the international cycling union strips lance armstrong of the seven tour de france titles, that could be the beginning of a domino effect because the international olympic committee is also determining if it will strip him of the bronze medal he won in 2000 in sydney. don? >> all right, thank you,
two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. and every day since, we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help people and businesses who were affected, and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open for everyone to enjoy -- and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. we've shared what we've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year.
bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been stronger. getting close to the bottom
of the hour. we'll get you updated on the headlines. george mcgovern, a former three-term senator, has died. he was 90. mcgovern was a world war ii veteran and a staunch liberal who vehemently opposed the war in vietnam. he entered hospice care last week near his home in south dakota. here is a look back at mcgovern's life and his legacy. >> reporter: george mcgovern lived a fascinating life. america's leading liberal came from republican parents. an outspoken critic of war who was a world war ii hero. he earned a ph.d. in history, then went on to make history. mcgovern first went to washington in 1957 representing south dakota in the house, then later in the senate where he served 18 years. he was among the first to challenge america's involvement in vietnam. >> i resent the president running this war on his election time table.
i don't think you ought to be playing a numbers game with human lives, and that's what this administration has done. >> reporter: his opposition to the war would become a trademark. lesser known, his work helping to reform the democratic party nomination process significantly scaling back the role of party officials and insiders and increasing the role of caucuses, primaries, and delegates. it's the system used by both parties today. it was mcgovern's own run for president in 1972 most people remember. it didn't go well. already a long shot against president nixon, it didn't help when his acceptance speech to the democratic convention was delayed until 2:30 in the morning, long after the huge television audience had gone to bed. then mcgovern was forced to dump his running mate, thomas eagleton after it was learned he had a history of psychiatric problems. nixon won by a land slide. despite the defeat, his campaign attracted the political young turks of the day boosting the
careers of gary hart and a then unknown bill clinton. mcgovern would try again in 1984 only to drop out after poor primary showings. but his words still resonate. >> the question is not are we better off than we were four years ago. the question is where will america be four years from now? what is the american future? what kind of america do we want to be? >> reporter: later in life the man from the south dakota prairie refocused on a cause he worked on in the kennedy administration, using america's agricultural strength to feed families at home and eventually around the world. it would be the legacy he prided most. one expert summed it up best saying, the same trait that cost mcgovern the white house would become the same quality many
later admired. george mcgovern's ability to say what others would not. >> mcgovern's family issued a statement earlier today and it reads in part, we're blessed to know that our father lived a long, successful, and productive life advocating for the hungry, being a progressive voice for millions and fighting for peace. he continued giving speeches, writing, and advising all the way up to and past his 90th birthday which he celebrated this summer. and this morning on cnn's "state of the union" big names on the left and right shared their memories of george mcgovern. >> he was a great statesman. i knew him quite well, and i'm very saddened. i think he'll be remembered obviously for his stance on the war in vietnam, for his bomber missions, but also for his contributions on agriculture, on hunger, and then the democratic party, he transformed the party. the primary system, getting minorities involved. he was a gigantic figure and a
classy, good, good guy. >> george actually was a very complicated person. he had served as a bomber pie lot in world war ii. he was not a pacifist. his argument over vietnam was about that particular war. he was a citizen. i remember being with him at the u embassy in rome for dinner one night and talking about he and goldwater, and he said one of the nice thing about losing badly enough is you don't have lots of regrets about what one thing might you have changed, and he had a very good sense of humor. >> george mcgovern, dead at the age of 90. the only suspect in a mass shooting today is dead. police now confirm to cnn that they found the suspect dead inside the day spa where witnesses say he killed three people and wounded four others. this is where it happened not far from milwaukee. police say the gunman killed himself. no official word yesterday on his connection to the victims. we checked the amtrak website and train service between chicago and detroit still disrunted. this after several cars jumped the tracks this morning. in this video you can see the
cars are leaning but lucky none of them tipped over. 12 people, by the way, were hurt, not seriously though. at least 135 people were killed in syria today, including 6 children and 8 women. syria's bloody civil war is more than 18 months old. the u.n. arab league envoy met with syrian president bashar al assad today in damascus. the envoy is trying to broker a cease-fire in syria before friday. syria's president says the other countries must stop arming the rebels. a terror plot called 9/11 2 was disrupted by jordan's intelligence department. a source told cnn the u.s. embassy in ahman appeared to be among the are a gets. jordan's government spokesman says 11 suspects are in custody. the name 9/11 2 suggests the plot was set for november 9th,
which is the seventh anniversary of the last al qaeda attack in jordan. it's one of the largest pilgrimages in the world and it's a sight to behold. muslims are flocking to the sacred city of mecca for the hajj which officially begins on thursday. millions of expected. if able, muslims are required to make this pilgrimage at least once in their lives. thank you all so much. livestrong. >> lance armstrong still a rock star to people who support the livestrong organization. he spoke to these charity cyclists today in texas calling the past two weeks interesting and at times very difficult. a growing doping scandal forced armstrong to give up chairmanship of livestrong and a whole bunch of big sponsors dropped him, too. this next story is about something that's never happened before. pope benedict xvi conditionenized the first native american saint at st. peter burg
today. lily of the mohawk is credited with the miraculous recovery of an american boy from a flesh eating bacteria in 2006 when his family prayed to her. >> in her time she had a tradition where she knew her creator very well and all the rules that go with it, loving and respected the elders, loving like the earth as in the environment. she had all these things, an appreciation of all of god's creation. when she became catholic, the creator, god, became jesus that she loved until she died, and she laid a wonderful example for us to be able to live in both cultures. >> well, the pope named six other new saints, including a german-born woman who immigrated
he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone
are working on a joke with local color. the secure cloud just received a revised intro from the strategist's tablet. and while i make my way into the venue, the candidate will be rehearsing off of his phone.
